1 can (8 oz) crescent dinner rolls
4 oz cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
3/4 cup fresh raspberries
2 tablespoons raspberry preserves
1 tablespoon butter, melted

1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 to teaspoon milk

***other fruits are optional, works well with cherries as well

1 - Heat oven to 375. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper; spray generously with cooking spray. Unroll dough; separate into 8 triangles. Cut each triangle in half lengthwise. On cookie sheet, place crescent triangles lengthwise in long row, point same direction, with edges overlapping slightly on cookie sheet. Press overlapping edges together to help seal, but leave triangle points free.

2 - In small bowl, beat cream cheese and 2 tablespoons of the granulated sugar with spoon until well blended. Spread cream cheese mixture in 2 1/2-inch wide strip lengthwise on widest part of dough, leaving 2 1/2 inch edge. In small bowl, toss raspberries and preserves; place on top of cream cheese layer.

3 - fold over tips of dough to enclose filling; pinch ends of dough on edge to attach. Gently picking up top end of dough, curve one end of strip to form top of cane. Brush dough with melted butter; sprinkle remaining 1 teaspoon granulated sugar over top.

4 - Bake 16 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes on cookie sheet. Use spatula to carefully help slide Danish from parchment to serving platter, loosening edges with spatula first, if needed. In small bowl, mix powdered sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of the milk until well blended. If too thick to drizzle, add additional drops of milk. Drizzle with fork over top. Serve warm.
